I have stayed all over London with the exception of the stratospherically priced hotels. I recently stayed here at this location in the Exec apartments for a week. Very nice accomodations. Clean, well appointed room with kitchen. No access to the Concierge lounge for apartment guests however, and lower point values. Two things I did not know when booking. Very conveniently located for numerous high-quality dining choices, and two closely located malls for additional good food choices or shopping. Not too much interaction with hotel staff after arrival, but what I did have was quite nice. Nice enough health club, but needs a TV. Tube station to Jubilee line is 8 minute walk away, and the high-speed ferry pier is 10-minutes away for a more scenic 15-minute ride into the city. I will defintely come back. I paid $175 pounds per night for a 1-bedroom apartment, full kitchen. Comparable hotels in town are at least double that, without the extra space.
Stay on the East side of the hotel. I was on the West side next to the light rail station, and you hear every train coming in and out.
May I endorse all of Beach's comments. It is a good hotel/Exec. apartments, and by Ldn's standards, not overpriced; its immediate surrounds are interesting in their own terms and offer a range of varied eating and drinking options; it is close to Ldn City Airport; it has the Docklands Light Railway close by (though visitors should bear in mind B's advice re rooms preferences), giving access to the City of Ldn within 20 mins. Anyone who is considering coming to London for the 2012 Olympics could do far worse than stay at Marriott West India Quay.
Can definitely agree with this one. I was able to stay there a few times while in London and each one was great. Wonderful staff, great property and easy location for sightseeing.
I was lucky enough to get a great upgrade a few times there, just under the exec lounge in the "sail" section. Great suite, very large by UK standards and even by US standards
